This is Mike....

Barely home and Mike was teaching....I LOVE this man.  We had saved a coconut to open when he was home....mostly because I hadn't a clue how to open the thing without a machete. ::snort::
The kids were suitably impressed with my stories of coconuts and hikes in the Philippines, stories of coconuts falling on Tod Hall's head....and Mike's stories of WW2 medics hooking iv tubes up between coconuts and wounded troops. 
Unfortunately, the coconut had sat too long and we had fermented coconut milk....coconut vinegar? Coconut wine?  We'll try again with a fresh coconut next week. LOL

Did you eat the white flesh inside that was my favorite part not the milk

We didn't eat any part of it - because it was fermented and old. LOL We'll buy a fresh one and try again. LOL
